We offer a personal meeting where we open-heartedly share about how we - with a combination of courage, power and energy - have chosen to go our own way. This has made us extremely humble, but it has also given us a lot of authority and valuable experiences. We talk about entrepreneurship and brand development, what has been our driving force from the day one, based on our aim to develop something new and genuine, with content that keeps its promise, which shall be able to appeal to the drinks enthusiast and the bon vivant as well as the connoisseur and the collector, says Steven Kautzky Andersson and Catherine Engelbrekt.
The flavours are what decide, every time. And then to enjoy a powerful series of drinks of absolute world class combined with the story behind the idea and their common driving force certainly adds an extra depth to the drink tasting!
Steven and Catherine form a perfect combo of a business driven and creative entrepreneurship where the idea of creating drink experiences of the absolutely highest quality indeed have fully succeeded. These two are humble and energetic, with an authority that can only be admired!
Pleasant taste experiences that felt innovative and different, in an inspiring way. I also got to learn new things about what the concept ultra-premium implies and how to work with brand development!
I got to experience powerful and pleasant tastes and fragrances. I learned more about how high-quality drinks can be developed and produced in an innovative and exemplary way, something I can apply to my own function in a different area of operation!
We carried out our own event for 100 guests in collaboration with Catherine Engelbrekt and Steven Kautzky Andersson. It was a drink tasting combined with an aperitif followed by a specially designed dinner in which I used selected characters and ingredients of the drinks from BrandStar Alliance for inspiration in my cooking. The response was very positive, the place was crowded and the guests had a wonderful experience where food and drinks combined with nice company contributed to an extraordinary event!

Catherine Engelbrekt and Steven Kautzky Andersson offer something that is both personal and admirable, regarding their enthralling journey and driving force in producing some of the very finest drinks. We arranged a theme-weekend called “GIN-makers weekend” including drink tasting, cocktail party, bar scene and dinner where the drinks were included as an exciting part of the cooking. It was very appreciated among our fine guests, but also among our wonderful staff!
